Blink cat (and kitten) food has created really excellent all-natural food for your furbaby. You can buy it in the supermarket, but far more conveniently, you can have it delivered!
It’ll arrive nicely boxed, and as an extra bonus, there’s a little cat toy inside! Little notes and treats appear from time to time in your delivery, which is a very thoughtful touch.
So, they do both cat and kitten food. There is very little difference between the two, except that the kitten food contains slightly more fat. When you sign up you give the age of your cat, so they will send you whatever is appropriate.
There’s also a little more choice with the cat food, but the basics, a mixture of meat and fish, are the same.
It’s important to note that Blink source all their meat and fish from British farms, with the exception of tuna, because it’s not native to the UK. But it’s completely sustainably sourced.
On to the food itself.
First, you can get a trial pack for use £1, with a variety of flavours. We all know our kitties can be surprisingly picky, so this is a great way to see which ones your cat likes. With a subscription you can pick and choose your cat’s preferences, and change them when necessary.
The meals come in little individual pouches, which are shelf stable, though obviously keep them somewhere reasonably cool. Blink recommends around 3 pouches a day for the average cat, though it will vary a little with size and age.
Now when they say natural food, they mean it!
A startling amount of cat food contains fillers, meat byproducts, cereals, and other yucky things that are absolutely not what cats are designed to eat! (And by the way, this also includes dry food.) Cats evolved eating mice and other small animals, and unless you can provide those, this is pretty much the closest thing you’ll find.
Blink cat food contains none of this stuff, you have meat, fish, broth, and a little added vitamins.When you open the packet it even looks like meat, and while you wouldn’t necessarily be in a hurry to eat it yourself (though you totally could) it smells like it should, meat or fish and not at all unappetising, not that strange pungent smell of canned cat food.
Of course, the fact that it is actual meat means that it is not cheap. But buying it direct from Blink, the pouches cost 83p each, which will probably be around £2.40 per day. Of course this is more expensive than the conventional cans or pouches, or those bags of dry food. But the difference in quality is enormous. After all, you wouldn’t eat nutritionally void junk food every day, so why should your beautiful cat?
So for the quality you get, a subscription is really a very good deal, and you can set up regular deliveries that can be adjusted as needed.
My beautiful kitty here enjoys it very much, and she can be a very picky little madam!
Incidentally, this was her reaction when she saw the little cat toy in the box! It’s become one of here favourite things.
